IT-Governance in der Praxis: Erfolgreiche Positionierung der by Andreas Rüter, Jürgen Schröder, Axel Göldner, Jens Niebuhr

By Andreas Rüter, Jürgen Schröder, Axel Göldner, Jens Niebuhr

Die Autoren adressieren die Sandwich-Position, in der sich die IT heute in vielen größeren Unternehmen befindet: Zum einen der Druck, Governance Anforderungen wie Sarbanes-Oxley oder Compliance Anforderungen zu erfüllen, und zugleich die Kosten weiter reduzieren zu müssen. Zum anderen der Anspruch, sich als innovativer Dienstleister aufzustellen, der im Verbund mit den Fachbereichen die Prozesskompetenz besitzt. Dieses Buch erörtert die Herausforderungen an die IT und zeigt anhand konkreter Praxisbeispiele effektive Wege auf, wie die IT Governance des Unternehmens ausgestaltet werden kann. In der zweiten Auflage wurden die Themen IT-Compliance und ihre Prüfung sowie Sicherheit in der IT ergänzt. Aus den umfangreichen Erfahrungen abgeleitete Handlungsempfehlungen und eine Checkliste, die den Verantwortlichen bei der Anwendung in der Praxis unterstützen, runden dieses Fachbuch ab.

"IT-Governance ist so neu nicht, aber die praktische Umsetzung zeigt vielerorts großes Verbesserungspotential. Eine leistungsfähige IT-Governance fasst Aufgaben wie professionelles IT-Management, unternehmerisches Führen, richtige Kommunikation und Verhalten zusammen. Das vorliegende Buch zeigt in konkreten Beispielen die aktuellen Herausforderungen aber auch die lohnenden Ergebnisse einer erfolgreich eingesetzten IT-Governance."

Prof. J. Menno Harms, Vorsitzender des Aufsichtsrats der Hewlett Packard GmbH, Vizepräsident des BITKOM Berlin

"Endlich ein Buch, das IT-Governance aus Sicht der Wissenschaft umfassend darstellt und auch die neuesten Entwicklungen in der Praxis berücksichtigt.
Ein "Muss" für jeden Wirtschaftsinformatiker, egal ob er in der Wissenschaft oder in der Wirtschaft tätig ist."

Prof. Dr. Walter Brenner, Direktor des Instituts für Wirtschaftsinformatik, Universität St. Gallen

"Das Buch verbindet Theorie und Praxis in einer hervorragenden Weise – neben der Darstellung von IT-Governance-Modellen im Unternehmens-Kontext und der strategischen Erarbeitung eines Gesamt-Entwurfes IT-Governance, wird die Umsetzung in der Praxis anhand konkreter Beispiele sehr anschaulich beschrieben. Lesenswert für den IT-Verantwortlichen und den company Manager!"

Dr. Andreas Resch, CIO Bayer AG und Leiter der Bayer enterprise Services

Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking by Georgia Weidman

By Georgia Weidman

http://www.nostarch.com/pentesting

Penetration testers simulate cyber assaults to discover protection weaknesses in networks, working platforms, and functions. details safety specialists around the world use penetration thoughts to guage company defenses.

In Penetration trying out, protection professional, researcher, and coach Georgia Weidman introduces you to the middle abilities and methods that each pentester wishes. utilizing a digital machine–based lab that incorporates Kali Linux and susceptible working structures, you’ll run via a chain of sensible classes with instruments like Wireshark, Nmap, and Burp Suite. As you stick with besides the labs and release assaults, you’ll event the most important levels of a precise assessment—including info accumulating, discovering exploitable vulnerabilities, having access to platforms, publish exploitation, and more.

Learn how to:

Crack passwords and instant community keys with brute-forcing and wordlists
attempt internet purposes for vulnerabilities
Use the Metasploit Framework to release exploits and write your personal Metasploit modules
Automate social-engineering attacks
pass antivirus software
flip entry to 1 computer into overall regulate of the company within the put up exploitation phase

You’ll even discover writing your individual exploits. Then it’s directly to cellular hacking—Weidman’s specific zone of research—with her device, the telephone Pentest Framework.

With its selection of hands-on classes that hide key instruments and techniques, Penetration checking out is the advent that each aspiring hacker needs.
About the Author

Georgia Weidman is a penetration tester and researcher, in addition to the founding father of Bulb protection, a safety consulting enterprise. She provides at meetings worldwide, together with Black Hat, ShmooCon, and DerbyCon, and teaches sessions on subject matters resembling penetration trying out, cellular hacking, and make the most improvement. She was once offered a DARPA Cyber quickly tune supply to proceed her paintings in cellular machine security.

Das Bitcoin-Handbuch: Bitcoin von A bis Z by Felix Mago, Tobias Gillen

By Felix Mago, Tobias Gillen

Kurzbeschreibung

Tobias Gillen und Felix Mago möchten sich gerne besser mit Bitcoins auskennen. Ihnen geht es nämlich wie den meisten Menschen, mit denen sie sich über das Thema unterhalten haben: Irgendwie kann jeder etwas damit anfangen, wenn es aber konkret wird, dann weiß doch niemand so richtig Bescheid.

Dieses Halbwissen betrifft zahlreiche Aspekte des Bitcoins, beispielsweise die zugrundeliegende Theorie hinter der Digitalwährung oder die Frage nach Einsatzmöglichkeiten und Alternativen. Vor allem aber betrifft es die besonders naheliegenden und praxisrelevanten Fragen: Wie beschafft guy sich einen Bitcoin und wie kauft guy etwas damit?

Um das alles herauszufinden, wagten sie ein test: Schritt für Schritt bringen sie sich und den Lesern den Bitcoin näher, indem sie sich selbst beibringen, wie das alles funktioniert. Am Ende soll guy über die neue Währung Bescheid wissen und in der Lage sein, sie zu nutzen. Genauso wie anderes Geld auch.

„Das Bitcoin-Handbuch“ richtet sich additionally an all jene, die Schritt für Schritt etwas über Bitcoins lernen wollen.

Soft Computing for Image Processing by Sankar K. Pal, Ashish Ghosh, Malay K. Kundu (auth.), Prof.

By Sankar K. Pal, Ashish Ghosh, Malay K. Kundu (auth.), Prof. Sankar K. Pal, Dr. Ashish Ghosh, Prof. Malay K. Kundu (eds.)

Any activity that contains decision-making can take advantage of delicate computing concepts which enable untimely judgements to be deferred. The processing and research of pictures is not any exception to this rule. within the classical photo research paradigm, step one is almost continuously a few kind of segmentation method during which the picture is split into (hopefully, significant) elements. It used to be mentioned approximately 30 years in the past via Prewitt (1] that the choices considering photo segmentation should be postponed by means of in regards to the photograph components as fuzzy, instead of crisp, subsets of the picture. It used to be additionally discovered very early that many simple houses of and operations on picture subsets may be prolonged to fuzzy subsets; for instance, the vintage paper on fuzzy units by means of Zadeh [2] mentioned the "set algebra" of fuzzy units (using sup for union and inf for intersection), and prolonged the defmition of convexity to fuzzy units. those and related rules allowed a number of the equipment of snapshot research to be generalized to fuzzy photo components. For are cent evaluation on geometric description of fuzzy units see, e. g. , [3]. Fuzzy equipment also are helpful in picture processing and coding, the place studying strategies will be very important in picking out the parameters of filters, quantizers, etc.
